Asus is a major electronics company in Taiwan and you've likely used a lot of their stuff. But can you pronounce their name?
I've been a fan of Asus products for a long time. They make a lot of great stuff like laptops, motherboards, video cards, and other consumer electronics. But they have a name that is unfortunately awkward for most English-speakers to pronounce properly. The company has recently produced an ad that mocks this to great effect - one of the best electronics ads I've seen in a while
This is pretty funny for me because one of my bosses was a huge fan of Asus
FYI, before I heard how to correctly pronounce "Ah-soos" around the time of the introduction of the original Eee PC, My friends and I tended to pronounce it "Ay-sys". How do you pronounce Asus?
